Tiger Army interview with psychobilly heartthrob Nick 13 at WWF New York

I can’t lie, Tiger Army was the band that made me fall in love with psychobilly. Hell, I don’t think I even knew what psychobilly was until I got the second Give ‘Em the Boot compilation from Hellcat in 1999 and was instantly smitten. Keep in mind, the Internet was crap in the late ’90s and discovering music was still limited to going to music stores and making mix CDs. That said, Tiger Army was the gateway drug that led me to discover a ton of great psychobilly bands and horror bands over the past 15 year.  All I can remember...

My Chemical Romance Live at Maxwell’s | 8/16/2002

This is a super early My Chemical Romance set shot at Maxwell’s right after “I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love” came out. The band opened for seminal Jersey punk icons, the Lawn Darts, and played an abridged half hour set before an already rabid audience. This was shot on a Sony DCR-TRV140 by the illustrious Josh Goldfarb and edited in iMovie. I was invited to cover the show after interviewing the band earlier in the week for the Belleville Times. I’ll post that interview eventually. It was pretty awful, considering I had no idea who...
